If you are a cheese lover then you have chosen the right place to visit in France! Philippe Olivier is a cheese shop in the heart of Boulogne. Rumour has it that it is one of the largest cheese shops in France, with the largest selection of cheeses on offer in Northern France.

Needless to say, it is a little stinky!

Staff are helpful in trying to make even the most French-challenged tourist happy with their choices.

What to buy: We stopped in here on our 2nd visit to Boulogne and picked out several cheeses to take back to London and enjoy. The selection included a camembert, a couple of goats cheese varieties and a firmer 'gouda' style cheese. A couple of the selections were a little too 'ripe' for my liking, but the rest were delicious.

What to pay: Less than you would expect
